So I'm looking at a 2011 Evil Twin. Do you think this will be a god choice for me? And if it is, should I go with the 147 or 151 (when looking at the 2011 line). Thanks!
Wiredsport - any feedback? I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts so I can make a decision on a board. Thanks!

Thank you! On tuesday I will get my Burton Cartels in large, and then I will check how it all fits together

What's the best Evil Twin for me? I'm 160 pounds and wear a US size 10.5 snowboot. I keep my stance angles duck like 25 and -25 ish.

Also, do I need a wide version of Evil Twin? What length? Thanks!

No Wide Version needed In my opinion the 157 Evil Twin should be fine

Heavy duck stance like 25's lets you go much narrower. No wide needed. 154 cm will be a great choice.

Thanks!

Hey, i'm 6'2 and 190 lbs. I ride like 95% park and mostly jumps and I love to butter and some boxes too. I was thinking of either Bataleon airobic 157 or Evil Twin 157. I don't want a stiff board, I want it to be playful and most definately forgiving so i can learn bigger spins and also flips. So which board would be better for me? Oh and i've got size 11 boots so both have 255 mm right? so thats pretty much perfect as it seems.
Thanks !

For inverts and bigger hits I would still suggest the ET. The Airobic will have a little advantage for butters / presses, but that is only part of what you are describing and the bigger stuff puts a much higher requirement of the deck.

The 157 will be terrific for your size. It is 255 at the waist.

Thanks!
